Devious Journal Entry

Devious Journal Entry

I AM NOW ON TWITTER!    Yes, I finally caved and joined the Collective....thanks to my obsession interest in Tom Hiddleston,        who did a SPECTACULAR job as Loki in both Thor and The Avengers.  (Just in case you didn't notice the shiny new      journal skin.  ^_^)  I have been so obsessed with The Avengers lately it's not even funny.  (Well, actually it is, but    that's beside the point.)    So yes!  Twitter!  It's fun!  Come play Follow the Leader!  ^_^

Wow, I haven't done one of these things in a while.  I was tagged by birdewilliams (https://www.deviantart.com/birdewilliams), so here are the questions she gave me: 5 facts about me: 1.  I'm a helpless romantic, but I'm very wary and cynical when it comes to love and relationships. 2.  When i watch TV, I tend to stop every 10 minutes to prowl my living room, hissing and muttering to myself. 3.  I didn't touch a computer until I was 11 years old. 4.  The most affectionate cats I have owned were both brown male tabbies. 5.  Given no interruptions and an engaging book, I can read 100 pages in an hour. 11 Questions by ~birdewilliams (https://www.deviantart.com/birdewilliams) 1.

Depression

Please visit my weekly blog: "The Cat's Cradle" It's been a while since I wrote a journal.  Actually, it's been a while since I've posted anything on deviantART.  I've kept up with my inbox (more or less) but it hasn't involved much more than passive watching and replying to the occasional comment on fav. A major part of my abscence is because I have nothing to post.  I haven't been drawing (not surprising since I'm an indifferent artist at best) but I also haven't written any poetry or prose.  It's been about 3 months since I've written anything creative.  I've had no inspiration, no desire to make or do anything. The reason for this is b

THE OTAKU REPORT: Otakon 2011!

My Website: "The Cat's Cradle" :thumb89279640: :thumb44407922: :thumb104365988: Hi everyone!  Long time, no see!  And new journal skin!  (I just finished watching Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and LOVED it, hence the new FMA themed skin.  ^_^) Just a quick note:  I think it's been too long to do a Nekocon 2011 or Katsucon 2011 report, so those two cons will have to remain a mystery for now.  I'll try to be more responsible with my Otaku Reports from now on.  Thanks for bearing with me, and enjoy!

OTAKON!

OTAKON!

Just a really quick notification saying that I will be at Otakon this year, along with my brother GrayWolf!  We'l be down all three days dressed as Jessie and James of Team Rocket from that classic show Pokemon.  So if you see any Jessie's or James's, stop by and say hi; it could be us!  A journal about our trip and WIPs of our costumes will follow. I haven't packed, I haven't cleaned, Racing, running, scheduling; Costumes done, save for the wigs... Why are pre-con days insane like this? Have fun everyone!

Four-Year Anniversary - NEW SKIN!-

Four-Year Anniversary - NEW SKIN!-

:thumb89279640: :thumb44407922: :thumb104365988: For me, Memorial Day isn't just about remembering our soldiers.  I salute all those men and woman, past and present, who have given their lives to defend us and our nation.  But this is also an anniversary for me.  As of today, it has been 4 years since I moved out of my parents' house. Four years. FOUR YEARS! Geez, time sure does fly!  I swear, it really doesn't feel like it's been four years.  And yet, somehow, that much time has passed and I have not died.  Granted, these past four years have been some of the hardest and most stressful of my life.....but things are getting better.  Not r

:thumb44407922: :thumb104365988: :thumb89279640: Greetings everyone! Wow, I can’t believe that it’s the end of February already.  And do you know what’s at the end of February?  My birthday!  I know that at my age it’s a little silly to get excited over a birthday, but I’m still riding on a con high, so I’m going to be excited about it!  And this year it’s a special birthday because I’m turning 23!  For the first and only time in my life, the day I was born and my age match!  C’mon, that’s reason enough to get excited, isn’t it?  (I think it is.  I’m wearing my crazy rainbow birthd

Hi everyone!  I hope that all of you are having a wonderful holiday, regardless of your religious persuasion (or lackthereof).  I know I have had a great day so far, although I am very stuffed with food and looking forward to a warm bed tonight. I stayed over at my parents' house on Christmas Eve so I could get up early with my brothers and open presents with my family.  "Early" turned out to be 9am since I'd only gotten about 5 hours of sleep a night for the past couple

:thumb44407922: :thumb104365988: :thumb89279640: Hi!  I’m Dan Green!  Wait, no, sorry, wrong script.  *papers rustle*  Ah, here we go!  *ahem* AnimeNEXT 2010:  another first for me.  First time in New Jersey for any length of time (going to Cape May one afternoon when I was 15 doesn’t count), first time at AnimeNEXT, first time I got to GO TO PANELS, and first time debuting a costume that I don’t think anyone has ever seen before.  Yes, remember my Super Special Secret Costume that I swore Birde to silence about?  That’s right!  Presenting YAMI NO TUTU!  Yep, I cosplayed Yami in a tutu.  Prepare to be scarred for life.

We're off to the convention...

We're off to the convention...

:thumb44407922: :thumb104365988: :thumb89279640: ... the wonderful convention called NekoCon!  Woot!  This is going to my first convention out of state with just me and my bro graywolf34 (https://www.deviantart.com/graywolf34)  It's a 4 1/2 hour drive.  *dies*  But it'll be worth it, I'm sure.  I'm so happy about all the firsts that have taken place this year!  I promise that, when I come back, I will have blogs for AnimeNext, Otakon 2010, and NekoCon.  I mean it this time.  ^_^;; Take care and enjoy yourselves everyone! (P.S.  I'm at 10,327 words on my National Novel-Writing Month entry.  21% done!  Hooray!)

And now, time for Something Completely Different!

:thumb44407922: :thumb104365988: :thumb89279640: Hi everyone!  No, sorry, this is not a convention blog (*is shot*) although they will be coming.  Soon.  In the meantime, I wanted to give all of my friends and watchers a heads up on something amazing. For all of you music-lovers who are tired of hearing the same old thing every day on the radio, or if you're a music-lover looking to be introduced to new and unfamiliar songs, artists, and genres, then there's a radio show for you.  It's called Something Completely Different! hosted by my good friend Foxglove Sayuri. Something Completely Different airs on Saturday nights at 7:00PM EST on "14

P.S.  I'll be going away to the beach next weekend, so I'll be M.I.A. for a time.  I'll try to get as muc

  • No, you haven't finished anything yet. Wait until you are closer to finishing a book before worrying about exposure on the internet.
  • Yeah! Make one with Blogger/Blogspot! (Pros and cons?)
  • Yeah! Make one with LiveJournal! (Pros and cons?)
  • Yeah! Make one with WordPress! (Pros and cons?)
  • Yeah! Make one with ______ (please comment with suggestions, pros, and cons.)
  • Yeah! Make your OWN website! (Except I don't know how to make one...lack of money and HTML...^_^;;)
  • You can barely keep up with your dA journal, so what makes you think you can keep up with a blog or a website? (Besides, no one cares anyway.)
  • Wait, what? Another poll?

Would you be interested in supporting the establishment...

  • Hell yes! A library with JUST anime and manga would be awesome!
  • No way! You have enough of an obsession as it is! Don't feed it!
  • My public library has a good enough selection. (Or I have plenty stockpiled in my closet.) ^_^
  • Well, I don't watch anime/read manga, but if that's something you otakus want to do, then go for it.
  • Eh, I don't watch anime/read manga, and it sounds like a waste of time.
  • My opinion is that I don't have an opinion.
  • Wait, what, a poll?
  • OTHER! (please comment)
